The 70 Most Anticipated TV Shows & Mini-Series Of 2024 - Page 2 of 8

60. “The Boys” (Season 4)
Everyone’s favorite R-rated, sometimes downright nasty satirical superhero show returns for a fourth season. Eric Kripke continues to write and lead the show with no end seemingly in sight. The main cast returns Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Antony Starr, Erin Moriarty, Jessie T. Usher, Laz Alonso, Chace Crawford, and more. Newcomers include Rosemarie DeWitt, Rob Benedict Elliot Knight, and Simon Pegg, also in last season.
Airdate: TBD via Prime Video.

59. “Anansi Boys”
Neil Gaiman delivers yet another fantasy series for Amazon, a mini-series that follows the two sons of the spider-god Anansi. The series stars Malachi Kirby alongside Delroy Lindo, CCH Pounder, Fiona Shaw, Whoopi Goldberg, Amarah-Jae St., and more. Gaiman is one of the show’s actual writers, not just an exec, and the series completed production in the summer of 2022, so it is due.
Airdate: TBD via Prime Video. Maybe in the spring or summer?

58. “Kaos”
Jeff Goldblum plays Zeus in a mythological dark-comedy from Charlie Covell (“The End of the F***ing World“). Janet McTeer plays Hera; Cliff Curtis is Poseidon; David Thewlis features as Hades, and Debi Mazar appears as Medusa. The series centers on six humans discovering their connection to an ancient prophecy while they deal with the corrupt and arrogant gods of Greek mythology.
Airdate: TBD via Netflix.

57. “Chief of War”
Jason Momoa finished his big Apple TV run on the apocalyptic series  “See” but ran straight back into a similar fray for the same streamer. He executive produces and stars in the series alongside filmmakers like Justin Chon (“Blue Bayou”). The series is the unprecedented telling of the unification of the Hawaiian Islands from an indigenous perspective, and Momoa stars as the war chief. Temuera Morrison and Luciane Buchanan co-star.
Airdate: TBD via Apple TV+.

56. “Black Doves”
British screenwriter Joe Barton is highly in demand. While U.S. audiences may not know his U.K. series, “Giri/Haji,” “The Lazarus Project,” some may remember that he was tapped to write a “Cloverfield” sequel and a “Batman” Gotham spin-off that unfortunately never happened, but being sought for gigs like that is a testament to his work. His latest is an upcoming British spy thriller TV series starring Keira Knightley. The series centers on the spy (Knightley), an affair that goes south in the dangerous London underworld, and another old espionage friend (Ben Whishaw) brought in to protect her. Sarah Lancashire, Andrew Koji, and a host of U.K. character actors co-star.
Airdate: TBD via Netflix. 

55. “The Jinx: Part Two”
Andrew Jarecki, the filmmaker behind the Emmy-winning 2015 documentary series “The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst,” is back with a sequel. That doc mini-series riveted audiences and basically led to Durst’s conviction for murder (in spectacular fashion, one day before the finale aired). Jarecki and his team continued their investigation for the next eight years, uncovering hidden material, Durst’s prison calls, and interviews with people who had never before come forward.
Airdate: Spring 2024 via HBO.

54. “Under The Bridge” 
A true crime drama television miniseries, the show follows the murder of a teenage girl and the woman (Riley Keough) who enters the secretive world of the accused killers, seven boys and another teen girl. Precocious 28-year-old actress/director Quinn Shephard (“Blame”) is one of the key writers and an exec producer. Izzy G, Chloe Guidry, Ezra Faroque Khan, Archie Panjabi, and Lily Gladstone are among the names in the series.
Airdate: TBD via Hulu.

53. “Interior Chinatown”
The series is the story of an Asian-American actor struggling against clichéd roles and stereotypes at work and in his personal life. The series stars Jimmy O. Yang, Chloe Bennet, Sullivan Jones, and Ronny Chieng. From writer/creator Charles Yu (“Westworld,” FX’s “Legion,” AMC’s “Lodge 49”), Taika Waititi was initially announced as the pilot director, but we’re not sure if that actually happened. However, episodes appear to have been shot by Stephanie Laing (“Physical”) and Jaffar Mahmood (“The Great”).
Airdate: TBD via Hulu, who ordered 10 eps of the series.

52. “Fallout” 
After years of trying and failed attempts, mega-creators Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan, the team behind “Westworld,” bring a live-action adaptation of Bethesda’s popular RPG video game franchise to the screen. Filled with post-apocalyptic chaos, Nolan will apparently direct the premiere and two other episodes. The series stars Walton Goggins, Ella Purnell, Kyle MacLachlan, Moises Arias, and Johnny Pemberton.
Airdate: April 12th, 2024, via Prime Video.

51. “Manhunt” 
Set in the aftermath of America’s greatest assassination, “Manhunt” is a conspiracy thriller about one of the best-known but least-understood crimes in history, the astonishing story of the hunt for John Wilkes Booth. Monica Beletsky (“Fargo,” “The Leftovers”) is the showrunner, and veteran filmmaker Carl Franklin directs the first two episodes. The limited series stars Tobias Menzies (“The Crown”) along with Anthony Boyle, Damian O’Hare, Patton Oswalt, Matt Walsh, and Hamish Linklater as Lincoln, among many others.
Airdate: March 15, 2024, via Apple TV+.
